Julia Donalson m: John Hampton Gibson of Attapulgus, Decatur GA
Posted by: Anita Kellum (ID *****6352) Date: March 04, 2010 at 08:08:09

I'm tracing a GIBSON family who settled in Quincy,Gadsden
Co. FL by 1830's. Notes say that James GIBSON was born c1775 in Ireland and was from Mecklenburg, NC. He married 2nd (widow) Martha HAMPTON SYLVESTER and lived in Sumter Co., SC for a while. They were granted guardianship of Harriett and John BATES in Sumter Co., SC in 1817, who were grandchildren of Naomi VAUGHN (JONES?) HAMPTON, mother of Martha. I believe that descendants of this family were in
Attapulgus, Decatur Co., GA around 1850 to 1942.

As I was looking for GIBSON's in Mecklenburg Co., NC, I found this:
Dated 12 March 1778
Will of Hugh Barnett, Sr., of Mecklenburg Co.,... wife Margret ...to my son Thomas, 73 ac, patent in my own name on Kings Mountain adj. Francis Huron, Col. Polk & John BATES.
WB A, pp 131-133

Dated 7 Sept 1785
Will of Hugh Barnett,... wife Susannah ...there is a Wit: George GIBSON, Robert Barnett and David Freeman. WB A, pp 137- 138

I also found a George GIBSON, a John GIBSON (census? 134 02 Twp 6) as residents in Mecklenburg 1762-1790 and a Patrick HAMPTON (census? 314 09 Twp 7).

Would this James GIBSON be related to the George & John GIBSON in Mecklenburg ? Would the BATES children be related to Polk & John BATES in Mecklenburg? Is there any connection of William HAMPTON (father of Martha) to the Patrick HAMPTON in Mecklenburg. Are there other GIBSON's in Mecklenburg Co., NC that are from Ireland who might be related to this James?
